Bevridge Boxing
This style was developed under Multiverser rules and published in Multiverser:  The Second Book of Worlds as part of the abilities of characters in Bah Ke'gehn, and as such is not compliant with AD&D martial arts.

Basic Style  Basic Style is single attack and weapon-adverse, relying on punches with hands.  It has no attack bonuses, but strong defenses with a -15SM and -15 damage mod.  This is imagined to be part of a more complete style of which the practitioner, Claude Winston Bevridge III, learned only this much.
Untitled The Untitled knows only the basic forms of the style.
Master The Master will know two maneuvers, almost certainly the Left Fake, a feint with the left hand which sacrifices one attack but gives a strong RS=SM bonus to the next, plus one of the two B7@3 attacks.  This will most likely be the Power Jab, an intensified damage punch which sacrifices initiative for damaging base damage.
Honored Master The Honored Master learns the other attack, a leveraged attack Knockdown which is more a throw; it sacrifices initiative and gives the opponent a +10SM for the minute, but throws the opponent RS/20 feet for a base dangerous damage.
Overall Overall it's a weak style, primarily a weaponless defense with a couple of strong attacks, and not intended to compete with the more potent martial arts styles of the Orient.  The knockdown makes it adaptable to limited field (ring combat) fighting, but it has no disarming or disabling maneuvers nor any sensory enhancement training.
If in the course of examining this material, you want to know more about AD&D, there are at least hundreds of sites on the web which may help; I'll just recommend my own two:
M. J. Young's Dungeons & Dragons Materials as source material for many campaigns and situations;
and all you need to create a character, Character Creation for Advanced Dungeons & Dragons First Edition.
